Showcase cover image for Blanket Chest

Project Information

I design this chest around the central hinge located in the center of the back. There is 2 aluminium bars with a spring that pops them into the holes when you put the lid on. It's made of walnut, african mahogany, birds eye maple and an unfinished cedar bottom.

Wow! I would of never thought of building a chest with just one hinge, but after looking at your design, it works. I also like how you ran the walnut strip across the lid over the curve. The detail really stands out on your chest
